Book Lecture: Jane Gallop (English, UWM)
February 1 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
UWM’s own Jane Gallop gave a special lecture in conjunction with her recently published book Sexuality, Disability, and Aging: Queer Temporalities of the Phallus (Duke, 2019). The talk addressed issues of mid-to-late-life disability and the impacts of disability and aging on sexuality, ultimately arguing for more scholarship at the intersection(s) of queer theory and disability studies.
Jane Gallop is a Distinguished Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in the English department at UWM. Her publications include The Deaths of the Author: Reading and Writing in Time (Duke, 2011), Living With His Camera (Duke, 2003), and Anecdotal Theory (Duke, 2002), among others.
